Domestic Violence Criminal Defense Lawyers

A child abuse accusation is extremely serious. Not only do you face criminal penalties (jail time, fines, counseling and more) but you also may lose custody of your child or children or have a restraining order or order of protection issued against you that prohibits you from coming in contact with your child. The social stigma associated with a person who has been accused of child abuse can also greatly impact your reputation, your job and your relationships.

A criminal defense attorney who is experienced in dealing with child abuse cases is your best bet if you have been accused of physically, emotionally or physically abusing a child. With a capable attorney on your side, you have the chance to avoid formal charges altogether. If charges have already been filed, your lawyer may be able to negotiate a lesser charge or litigate your case in court and win. Either way, you will be better off with an attorney to protect your rights.


The criminal defense attorneys at Hager & Schwartz, P.A. are former Broward County and Miami-Dade County state prosecutors who have taken on thousands of cases in their careers, litigating hundreds of those cases in court. We have offices located in Volusia County, Broward County, Palm Beach, Fort Pierce and Miami Dade County and take on child abuse cases throughout Florida.

If you are looking for a criminal defense lawyer who will do whatever it takes to protect your rights and defend your case, look no further than the aggressive attorneys at Hager & Schwartz. Whether you have been accused of domestic violence, physical abuse, spousal abuse, emotional abuse, neglect, physical abuse or sexual abuse, a defense lawyer at our firm can offer you a free consultation to see how we can help you.


Regardless of the charges that are brought against you, you have rights under the U.S. Constitution. You have the right to remain silent. You have the right to an attorney. You are innocent until proven guilty. Unfortunately, in the face of disturbing child abuse accusations, law enforcement and a jury may neglect these rights. You may be treated as though you are already guilty, and if you do not have a defense attorney to protect your rights, you may be found guilty in court for a crime that you did not commit. Don't take a chance with your rights and your future. Consult a child abuse defense lawyer at Hager & Schwartz immediately and find out what can be done to safeguard your rights and interests.
